From the first band waking up your senses to that emotional sunset slot and the all-important headliner. Other fantasy festival essentials will be covered too, from choice snacks to tent skills (ha! Celebrities pitching their own tents? No chance...) and of course, are we gonna need a fancy toilet?

    Declan McKenna – Mini-beasts, Funk & Franks (vegan)

    Declan McKenna – Mini-beasts, Funk & Franks (vegan)

    A forest glade is where we find Declan McKenna for his fantasy festival, steeped in 1970s funk. All that glitters is pure musical gold here, as Declan takes us on a global tour of his favourite performers, finishing the night with a legendary slot from a band that wouldn’t be out of place in Jurassic Park. The mysteries of social media come up for debate, while there’s no denying the value of a decent sausage sarnie - of the vegan variety when attending Declands fest. Yum.

    Shaparak Khorsandi – Neurodiversity, Names & Gonzo

    Shaparak Khorsandi – Neurodiversity, Names & Gonzo

    What’s in a name? A lot as it turns out, as the artist formerly known as Shappi casts quite the magical spell at her dream festival. There’s talk of how a recent ADHD diagnosis has proved a positive game-changer, her mum’s dill rice, and the PTSD she still feels after fleeing from terror threats as a child in Iran. Her choices on this fantasy stage range from childhood comedy heroes, to mercurial kings of the stadium (one music, one comedy), and a chart-topping icon who’s also there to look after her kids. Bliss.

    Carl Cox – Penguins, Halloumi & Heavy-Duty Speakers

    Who hasn’t dressed up as a penguin at a festival? DJ Carl Cox reminisces about the perils of holding a cider when you’ve got flippers and meet one of your musical heroes. His line-up choices include arguably the UK’s best-loved female singer-songwriter right now, a legendary psychedelic group and some familiar fire-starting friends. Just don’t mention the weather…

    Jodie Whittaker - Mud, Mates & Wine Flights

    Jodie Whittaker - Mud, Mates & Wine Flights

    If Doctor Who could choose their favourite bands… We won’t even go there, but there’s much excitement at Jodie Whittaker’s dream festival, where every detail has been thought out, from oat lattes to wine flights and imported hot dogs. Expect jangly colourful pop, a rock legend, Swedish sisters and one of Canada’s finest. Plus, Jodie takes us back to the mudfest that was Glastonbury ‘98, her backpacking adventures in New Zealand as a teenager, and that one time she got thrown out of a restaurant for her over-enthusiastic dancing. Perfect.

    Joy Crookes – Hula-hooping, Fried & Fresh

    Joy Crookes – Hula-hooping, Fried & Fresh

    Revelations about the late, great purple one, the impact of a hula-hooping goddess, and the joy of a battered sausage all converge on Joy Crookes’ imaginary festival. Her music choices run the gamut of genres in a beautiful way as does her description of that sublime place where fried and fresh food meet. She tells why having the shows close to home is vital for her mental wellbeing, and there’ll be dancing early on, and lots of it.

    Imagine Dragons – Ayahuasca, Egos & Emotional Mormons

    Imagine Dragons – Ayahuasca, Egos & Emotional Mormons

    Dan Reynolds, Imagine Dragons’ singer-songwriter, welcomes a clash of the egos as he lays out the five acts for his dream festival. One of rap’s finest gets higher billing than perhaps the most influential band of all time, while a singer-songwriter with a penchant for limes and coconuts tops the entire day. Plus there are tales of sibling rivalries and a near-miss at ruining Beyoncé’s dress at the Grammys, oh and ayahuasca...
